Event Details

Have you considered electric vehicles for your business?

With new models entering Australia, increasing battery ranges, and significantly faster charging technologies, now is a good time to capture the opportunities for business and government fleets.


Electric vehicles are quieter, and have fewer or no tailpipe emissions. They contribute towards cleaner air and reduced carbon emissions, especially when charging from solar power or a renewable energy contract.

  • Receive practical information on the business case for electric vehicles
